This is Peanut Butter Brickle. When life gets complicated and busy, you wonder when life got so complicated and busy. Surely you haven’t always had so much to do.
I can look back when I was a puppy and I knew where the time went. Back then, things were simple. I just had to a pair of shoes to chew. Or a bed frame to bite. Yes. I did that.
But now I ponder life and its meaning. I have individuals I miss who are no longer here.
And it seems like life is in phases. You are young. You are not so young. You are old. You take your drinks shaken but not stirred. And then you get a drink on the rocks.
That’s right. Life gets rocky the deeper we get into it. Everything seems harder yet we know better.
We think back on mistakes and we wish for more time. Then when we have it all figured out, we become someone that someone else misses.
Life on the rocks may be harder. But you’re stronger than you think. Life on the rocks is sometimes our making. We fill our time with busy and chaos and commotion. We find it hard to sit still and think.
It’s only a few that make the most out of their time to be better and do better and help others. It’s only a few that know how special life is on the rocks. I. Am. Loving. It.
I’m finding that the more places I travel to, and the more individuals I meet that everyone has the same phases. It’s only a few that realize how precious life is.
